Developer Cuts BDSM Scene from LadyKiller in a Bind After Overwhelming Fan Feedback

The BSDM game Ladykiller in a Bind is all about rough sex, but it is supposed to be completely consensual. The Developer Christine Love has removed a sex scene that was making players uncomfortable for being a little too forceful, but not in a kinky way. In the game, the protagonist is a lesbian woman who is dressed to look like her brother in order to take his place on a graduation cruise. Obviously the point is to hook up with people on the cruise and, as the name implies, it’s all about that BSDM. This context usually involves being physically restrained, the granting and relinquishing of control, and enjoyable pain – both mentally and physically. The most important part? Consent.

The scene is question involves your brother’s rival “President”. He’s not a nice guy in every day life and even worse in the bedroom. A transcript of the scene describes the different options, but they mostly lead to the same thing. President, thinking you are your brother, degrades you and then convinces you to give him sexual favors in exchange for his help. He is not only forceful, but hateful, and in some versions once he realizes who you are, actually takes photos of you doing the things to him in order to send them to your brother. “I recoiled, but then he grabbed me by the hair, refusing to let me pull my head back.”

Love said in her latest Ladykiller patch notes that she removed the scene after players voiced their numerous concerns and she has rewritten it in order to give it “a different tone”.

The original goal of the scene was to demonstrate a darker—certainly not safe IRL—fantasy to contrast with the safety of the Beauty’s arc. But even after multiple revisions, clearly a lot of players were extremely uncomfortable with its presence, and still ended up being blindsided—I think I failed to account for the player’s context, and I’d rather the scene be gone than make anyone else uncomfortable.”
